Netflix has released the first official trailer for the upcoming stylish reboot of the classic PC game and animated series, Carmen Sandiego. Starring Gina Rodriguez as the titular thief, we follow Carmen in a new story as she abandons villainous organization V.I.L.E. after realizing the danger they harm to regular people.
Rodriguez will also be playing the classic thief in a live-action film for Netflix, as well, so this should be quite a fun adventure leading up to a big film later this year.
After what seems like ages since its initial reveal, Entertainment Weekly has given us our first look at the upcoming animated series for Carmen Sandiego, starring Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin) as the voice of the titular criminal. According to the reveal, the 20-episode series will be split between the present, and Carmen’s past into shaping her into the master thief she’s known as.
It’s nice to see that the interesting visual style presented in the teaser image has carried through to the show, as it was unique and looks incredibly fun. Hit the jump to check out a few additional images from the series. Carmen Sandiego hits Netflix on January 18th, 2019.
Last year, Netflix revealed that actor Gina Rodriguez would voice the globe-trotting adventurer Carmen Sandiego in a new animated series. Now, it’s been revealed that she’ll continue the role in a live-action feature film for the streaming giant, as well, according to Deadline.
Rodriguez will also produce the film through her I Can and I Will Productions, alongside Kevin Misher, and Caroline Fraser. No writers or directors have been attached to the project as of yet, but it’s expected to debut on Netflix in 2019.
